5:17 am
creating a problem near fort morgan. visibility less than a half mile there. it's improved in just a little bit. still only a mile visibility there. as you take a look at the wider picture, this will stay parked right where it is, right over colorado through the weekend. nothing but sunshine for us through the weekend with a nice warming trend thanks to this high. after 65 this afternoon, we'll top out at 72 tomorrow. 73 coming up on sunday and down to 67 next tuesday with maybe a chance for some showers. here in colorado's weather center and allen, we're talking about matthew. >> i'm stunned as i watch this. i think folks need to understand how it's working. this is actually the fartherrest spot west on the east coast. >> jacksonville. >> i did a few years and worked in denver in the 90s. it's interesting this oddly
5:18 am
that the gulf stream runs out here and that's the warmer water, right. >> correct. as you get closer to the coast, the water actually gets cooler there which is unusual. what i want to do here is take this full screen and show you the last 24 hours of matthew. we'll flip to the other computer if we could. this was 5:00 a.m. yesterday and you can see the center of the storm as it made its way up off the coast of miami and no n cape canaveral. they've reported wind gusts of 100 miles per hour in cape canaveral. the strongest part of the hurricane is on the right front side of the hurricane. that's offshore. and if matthew continues to move parallel to the coast, that could mean that florida could dodge the worst of this. there's still going to be damage and flooding and storm serge here but as we take a
5:19 am
to daytona beach, the eye of the storm and stronger wind should stay off the coast. if this robles any farther to the west, that could be a problem. it could make land fall and cat two storm this weekend in south carolina. look at the latest track. it goes out into the atlantic and then it swings back towards south florida. this will be tuesday of next week. still a little too far again and hit the southern tip of florida as a direct hit that could create more problems. >> exactly. >> explain to people. i think a lot of people don't understand the concept of storm certain. as i understand it, a hurricane sits like a bowel in the water. push the bowl down and what do you get? >> and the water starts coming
5:20 am
lines. the wind gets head lines and we only talk about the wind. we use to win the hurricane strength. with all the wind, it causes that serge of water and the water comes up on to the coast and that's, that's what kills people and does the most damage. it's the storm serge because it's a huge wave of water that can sometimes go miles inland. >> yeah, right. you have a lot of houses built 10-11 feet above cases of 140-mile an hour winds. >> thanks for explaining. let's go to the news room.

when i was one year old, i was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer on my spinal chord. but i spent my whole life fighting back. so you can imagine what i thought when i saw donald trump say... "i don't know what i said, ah, i don't remember!" "that reporter he is talking about suffers from a chronic condition that impairs movement of his arms." i don't want a president who makes fun of me. i want a president who inspires me, and that's not donald trump.
